Zona a traffico limitato
Zona a traffico limitato (ZTL) is a restricted traffic area in Italy. There are around 200 schemes that are enforced with cameras, plus 100 low emission zones. They help protect historic city centres from excessive traffic, which would otherwise make the city less attractive. The low emission zones also help reduce pollution, particularly in the north Italian regions which have very high concentrations of fine particulates (PM10).
The zones are sometimes poorly signposted and drivers sometimes enter them by accident. Foreigners intending to drive in italy can find information about the schemes at the multilingual website www.urbanaccessregulations.eu.
